Who is Hugo Lloris?

Hugo Lloris is a French professional footballer who plays as a goalkeeper and is the captain of both Tottenham Hotspur and the French national team. In the media, he is referred to as a sweeper-keeper. He is a three-time recipient of the Ligue 1 Goalkeeper of the Year award from the National Union of Professional Footballers (UNFP). In 2010, Lloris took over as captain of the national squad for the first time. On February 28, 2012, he was promoted to first-choice captain. He guided France to the quarterfinals of both the Euro 2012 and the 2014 FIFA World Cups, as well as the runners-up spot at Euro 2016 and the 2018 FIFA World Cup victory.

Hugo Lloris was born in the Mediterranean city of Nice, France, on December 26, 1986. His mother was a lawyer named Marie Lloris, and his father was a Catalan banker named Luc Lloris who worked in Monte Carlo. Gautier, his younger brother, is a central defender who now plays for OGC Nice. While he was playing for Nice in 2008, his mother passed away. He earned national acclaim after he turned down the manager’s offer of bereavement vacation in favor of playing in a league match for Nice. Despite the circumstances, he performed admirably in the contest.

Lloris is a goalkeeper with “lightning reflexes and good decision-making” who is “a formidable opponent in one-on-one situations.” Lloris also “knows how to command his box.” His playing style, especially his speed when coming off his line to anticipate opponents and clear the ball, has earned him the moniker “sweeper-keeper” in the press. Due to his athleticism in goal, Lloris has been dubbed an “acrobatic shot-stopper” and is widely regarded as one of the finest goalkeepers in the world, with former Tottenham manager José Mourinho praising him as “the best in the Premier League” in 2020. While he has been praised for being comfortable with the ball at his feet and generally reliable in his passing, he has also been chastised for some high-profile errors he has made throughout his career, which have frequently resulted in goals, owing to his poor distribution and decision-making when attempting to play out from the back. He’s also been criticized for being inconsistent, and he’s had to deal with ailments regularly during his career. Despite his penchant for making mistakes, Sky Sports’ Adam Bate classified Lloris as “underrated” in 2020 and an “excellent shot-stopper” because of his quickness and ability to make several saves continuously throughout a season.

In 2002, Lloris met Marine while studying at the Lycée Thierry Maulnier. He announced the birth of their daughter, Anna-Rose, on September 23, 2010. In 2012, they married at Nice’s Église Saint-François-de-Paule. Giuliana was born in 2014, just in time for the World Cup in Brazil. Léandro, their son, was born on September 20, 2019. Lloris’ mother died in 2008, while he was playing for Nice. He won national recognition just two days after her death when he turned down a bereavement vacation offer from manager Frédéric Antonetti in favor of playing in a league match for Nice.

Lloris was picked to appear on the cover of the French version of FIFA 11 alongside international teammate Karim Benzema on August 10, 2010. After being apprehended by police in west London on August 24, 2018, Lloris was charged with drink-driving. Lloris later pled guilty to being more than twice the drink-drive limit at Westminster Magistrates’ Court. He received a £50,000 fine and a 20-month driving restriction.

Hugo Lloris’ contract with Tottenham Hotspur Football Club was recently renewed, and it will now last until 2022. Since 2012, he has been a member of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club. This contract was projected to be worth around $29.4 million. His contract has a bonus clause that specifies that if he starts in the starting 11 and the team loses or draws, he will be paid £3,500 every match. His net worth is estimated to be over $30 million.

Lloris stands 1.88 meters tall and weighs 78 kilograms. His eyes are dark brown, and his hair is black. He has a well-balanced and healthy body.

He later joined the under-19 team and was a member of the 2005 UEFA European Under-19 Championship winning team. Lloris participated in each of the team’s five games in the competition. Because of his obligations to the senior squad, he only made five appearances with the under-21 team. Despite having been called up to the senior team and the player having last played for the club in August 2007, coach Erick Mombaerts called up Lloris to the under-21 squad on 11 October 2008, with the under-21 squad seeking to qualify for the 2009 UEFA European Under-21 Championship. Lloris accepted his call-up and began the second leg. Germany got a late goal from Benedikt Höwedes with France seconds away from a position in the tournament due to the team’s 1–1 draw in the first leg. The 1–0 defeat knocked France out of the competition, as well as Lloris’s under-21 career.

For France’s match against Spain on February 6, 2008, Lloris received his first call-up to the senior national squad. However, the day before the Spain friendly, he played for the B squad in a friendly encounter against the Congo DR.

Lloris preserved a clean sheet and made a crucial stop from a Martin Cáceres header as France won 2–0 against Uruguay in the quarter-finals.
